I have Spain beating the Netherlands in my bracket; today's victory over Brazil helps.

As you were.

And now for something completely different (and damn good),

"krauts vs dutch" caught my eye...complete newbie to WCup, but those are the two I am rooting for as well; just chatting with Rob about what it's like when you jump into a sport without any real knowledge (I coached the kids in soccer for years without ever understanding what "offsides" was). Have watched more WCup in the past three weeks than in my entire life to date.

I still don't get offsides.
Every time there's a great pass and it looks like somebody's gonna have a hell of an opportunity to score...... the whistle blows.
What is 'offsides' and why is it so wrong?

if i am not mistaken a player must have at least two defenders, including the goalie, between himself and the goal when a ball is passed to him. sometimes the defense will intentionally move forward to create an offsides situation. among other things this rule prevents players from just standing in front of the goal waiting to score. as a side note from watching the game this morning i learned that a player cannot be offsides on a throw-in. this site has a good explanation..........

Yes, that's my understanding, though "even" is acceptable it seems (ie, draw a line across the field). When my two oldest boys were in third & fourth grade, on a team, we played a team with a Nigerian coach, and he called it every time, and I was "WTF? they are at least all going the same direction and not in a scrum (all bunched together, immobile--every soccer dad, and mom, knows this structure), so STFU and let them play!"

There, Micah; two in one day.

It's just like hockey except the Blue Line moves with the last non-goalie defender. So, the last non-goalie defender often moves up the field to place an attacker in the off-sides position. It's defensive strategy.

BD -

Good call on the Krewe. They did a killer set at Floyd Fest last year and are coming to Va Beach in August.

Edited because I am a dumb ass and forgot the link to the Floyd set
